New Starbucks location now open in Mississauga
When the coffee gods close a door (or many doors), they often open a window.
Although Starbucks shuttered about 300 stores across Canada (including several stores in Mississauga) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company recently opened a brand new location in the city's east end.
The newest cafe, located at 362 Lakeshore Rd. E. in Mississauga's Lakeview neighbourhood, officially opened its doors earlier this month.
"We are very excited to bring a new Starbucks location to the Mississauga area. Whether you're visiting us to order your favourite beverage, or a bite to eat, we're open to our customers for grab-and-go in-store, mobile order and pay and drive-thru, if you choose to use it," Ian Gampel, store manager, said in a statement.
"We already feel so welcomed in the community and look forward to serving our customers in ways that are both safe and convenient for them."
The Seattle-based coffeehouse and roastery chain announced the acceleration of its five-year “transformation strategy” last year as it responded to changes in consumer habits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The restructuring includes adding new drive-thru locations, the expansion of delivery and a pilot of curbside pick-up only coffee shops.
Of the 300 or so Canadian locations that closed, Mississauga lost long-standing cafes in Streetsville and Square One.
Starbucks' new Lakeview location officially opened on April 1.
